that the overall impact of the economy will be to slow down the recovery. >> what do we know about planned talks next week? >> not much. as you just were saying there's not been much in the way of talks so far and most of what the president has planned is what the republicans have been decrying as more of a campaign strategy than anything across the country and taking his case to the people about the potential effects of this sequester. he did make those calls to boehner and mcconnell yesterday. it was seen as prefunctory and no real negotiations and i think part of the reason why the discussion is turning in to a blame game is that both sides have basically accepted that this is going to happen and now all that remains is trying to blame each other for it when it comes. >> zachary, you know wall street and all sides of this. we have not seen a great reaction of wall street. that was the looming cloud with the fiscal cliff. what would wall street do and jolt me believes of congress. does that help or hurt the president as he tries to explain to people, at least what he feels will happen and not

is another prime example of how this policy can advance growth in the overall economy. when the fcc first allocated unlicensed spectrum, it is primarily used for baby monitors and garage door openers. then wifi hit the scene and demand has been off the charts. in 2005, tens of millions of wi-fi devices were sold and in 2011, at least 150 million of those devices were sold in the u.s. unlicensed wi-fi is now an integral part of the way mobile carriers deliver their services. the consumer federation of america found that wi-fi also allowed wireless carriers to save more than $25 billion per year in deployment costs. according to some, the annual contribution of the wireless sector to our nations economy is estimated to be more than $50 billion per year. it has increased so dramatically that we need more spectrum to support these services. the 2.4 gigahertz band, my critical success and other technologies is increasingly congested, particularly in major cities, densely populated centers are the most expensive geographic areas to deploy it licensed networks. therefore, i commend the staff are
